Adult Services

We are committed to offering adults a variety of leisure and fitness experiences to choose from throughout the year. Regular exercise and physical activity are important to the physical and mental health of almost everyone, including older adults. Being physically active can help you continue to do the things you enjoy and stay independent as you get older. We offer adult programs and activities at our Adult Activity Centers, which are available only to adults ages 21+, and also in our recreation and community centers.
